through the cracks lewis black catches it for a segment we call "back in black." ♪ >> the presidential campaign is in full swing and every day brings another bland stump full of nabmbpamby platitudes. >> if you have a business, you didn't build that. we succeed because of our individual initiatives but also because we do things together. >> most americans hear that and they fall asleep. [ laughter ] but not the romney campaign. they got right to work making this. >> people who have worked hard, started a business and created jobs can't believe what president obama is saying about them. >> if you have a business, that -- you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> unbelievable. >> what an insultth i'm outraged. i can't believe he just said
7:40 pm
that. >> i can't believe it either. because he didn't just say that!

people have the right to do. >> you don't need to lie to make romney look anti-gay. it's unnecessary. it's line katy perry adding fireworks to her breasts. we were already looking at them. [cheers and applause] but the romney campaign understands that the key to any good lie is specificity. >> whywhere did the obama stimulus money go? electric cars from finland. >> electric cars from finland? i'd say that you can't make that (bleep) up but they did it. [ laughter ] the money didn't come from the stimulus. the loan program was started by bush and i it wasn't for building electric cars from finland. it was for engineering jobs in the u.s. but the point is electric cars from enfinland ahhhh socialists. if you are watching these ads and wondering are they allowed
